I was surfing YouTube today and came across this Good Morning America footage from the 15th Anniversary Shows in Boulder in 1980. Imagine my surprise when I saw myself and some of my friends in the footage. It only took me 32 years to discover this.
Starting at about 1:23 in this video you can see my friend Lisa (in the red dress) and me (bandana). behind us are some other friends as well. Damn Hippies!! LOL

Thanks for posting that. What a neat find! It must be surreal to find your past self on a video so unexpectedly. I tried to see if I recognized anyone in the crowd, but what the hey, everyone looks the same! (In a good way, of course.)

It's great to see good clips from that era. There don't seem to be many around; mostly what I've seen that are actually viewable seem to be from news shows, like this one.

Btw here's something funny. I've read the band sort of forgot the Boulder show had been advertised as their "15th anniversary show," and then made it up on 6/8 with the UJB sandwich -- something to make the show more "special." But this seems to be shot on 6/7 (my guess is that the Brent riffs used as background on the clip are from the 6/7 Friend of the Devil ... so the news team was shooting early to make their deadline.) Clearly SOMEONE called the news team for that day, and clearly they did an interview earlier, and clearly the news team was standing right there during the show. Kind of impressive, in its way, that they could "forget" under those circumstances ...

I did find myself on a Neville Brothers Bootleg once. Heard myself calling out Aiko Aiko in the background. Knew I was there, and knew I called out, but didn't know that I was caught on the audio. Kind of a rush to hear myself 25 years later.
